into him, and then they both crashed into the wall His first instinct was to fight, to shove back until he made room for himself But then Zeke caught Jacqs by the shirtfront, fisting it as he pinned Jacqs against the wall Zeke s hot mouth pressed against Jacqs s lips Gotta love the wall slamming sex Oh and zero gravity sex That melted my brain.With SciFi a HEA is not always guaranteed, but we get an absolutely perfect one here I loved it.Highly recommended Meh Took me a long time to get into it I wasn t crazy about Jacqs though he did grow on me The story took A LOT of time to quantify various sexualities that I found tedious Why does everything have to have a specific and precise label I did getinterested as the story progressed I think, essentially, it wassci fy than I was anticipating, but I can t say I didn t enjoy their ahem, physicality eyebrow raise Wow Oh, wow.I didn t intend to write a review for this book I was just going to link my review to Xing s and call it a day.But then I read someHere we have Jacqs Jacqs is unapologetically gruff and honest to a fault He has pretty much alienated everyone around him with his rude behavior and stand offishness I made a new word What makes him so amazing is that he is so incredibly self aware He knows exactly who he is and if no one else likes it, well that s just too bad He will te Wow Oh, wow.I didn t intend to write a review for this book I was just going to link my review to Xing s and call it a day.But then I read someHere we have Jacqs Jacqs is unapologetically gruff and honest to a fault He has pretty much alienated everyone around him with his rude behavior and stand offishness I made a new word What makes him so amazing is that he is so incredibly self aware He knows exactly who he is and if no one else likes it, well that s just too bad He will tell you exactly what he thinks without an ounce of guilt And he s 100% heterosexual Or so he thinks.Jacqs is settled in his life He understands that he s been placed on the Candiru with no intention of him ever leaving He s accepted his fate and is content for the most part He doesn t like change so his current way of life is just fine with him.Then he meets Zeke His new commander His new intriguing commander His new sexually arousing commander And everything gets tilted on its head.But does Jacqs balk at the idea of being attracted to Zeke Does he lash out and push him away Does he run NO After some careful introspection, he does what he normally does whenever something new comes at him He meets it head on He doesn t back down He actually seeks out Zeke and tells him what he s feeling He explores his new desires without any fear or trepidation.This book was a breath of fresh air The perfect balance between character driven storyline and action adventure A fine example of the classic space opera And all the secondary characters were fully fleshed out as well I was sucked into the story from the first word and wasn t let go until the end of the epilogue I laughed, I cried, I cringed, I even shouted at my screen a time or two And it was all because of Jacqs He made this alluring story all thefascinating just by being who he was and having no regrets on how he as well as his life turned out I wish I could meet someone like Jacqs in real life Lyn Gala gets top marks from me and now and forever will be an auto buy for me 3 weak

story 3 1 2 stars to the shorty I enjoyed to follow the cocky gunner, Jacqs Glebovs s, way against his first attraction to a man Yes, to a MAN The very new Commander on the spaceship Candiru, the good looking Zeke Waters They were such a great couple and the chemistry between them was unbeatable Damn, but Zeke was beautiful Every time he saw the man, it plucked at something in Jacqs s chest If he didn t know better, he d call it an addiction But I m a bit disappointed at the rest, the other half I lostandof the feeling for it Sadly disappeared almost all my interest in the suspense events Eventually, it became a battle of wills Some parts in Turbulence..mostly the romantic ones is actually very good and very well made , but I must admit that it was a lengthy and ultimately a very hard read for me I m sure that lovers of sci fi or suspense or war stories would have much greater benefit from this than what I had It was too much war policy and lengthy long scenes occasionally It s a pretty dark and hopeless world view, which should aroused my interest, but I had to fight my way throughor less every single page in the end The love story is very tender and entertaining The guys are adorable and funny to listening to their bantering is super The steaming part is worth the highest grade But otherwise I was pretty bored Sorry Maybe it s me and I ll probably stick torelationship oriented romances from now on Suspense, war etc are probably not really my thing nowadays The world s going to take a shit on my head anywhere I go, but when we re together, it s easier to not think about how much it smells I may be cranky and this book is perhaps worth a higher grade I hate being the stubborn bitch but I have to write what I felt Luckily, I was still quite happy and satisfied with the total when I finally finished It hadn t felt right to drop down to two stars It was quite okay in the end and I m really pleased with the lovely epilogue Now it s done and I enjoyed Jacqs and Zeke a wonderful coupleThis became, am I sorry to say, a fairly unstructured and slightly slurred review All my energy is used and the clock is also way after midnight I LIKE unfortunately, not so much as I wantedThe Only Way Out Is In is a free 100 pages novella from M M Romance Group with a pic of the very tough guy Jayne from the TV drama Firefly a series I loved as inspiration view spoiler not this pic, but I liked this drawing of Jaynehide spoiler I have a feeling this is going to be really good I have a feeling this is going to be really good Turbulence came together in an interesting way It started out as Firefly fan fiction, when a fantastic someone requested a story about Joss Whedon s Firefly crew member Jayne during the Love Has No Boundaries event for the M M Romance Group on

Firefly crew member Jayne during the Love Has No Boundaries event for the M M Romance Group on Goodreads Lyn Gala took the prompt and turned it into what would become my favorite story of this year s event The Only Way In Is Out 100 pages, get it for free here.My love for that novella has a lot to do with the fact that I m a Firefly fangirl Addict Crazy To the extent that my hatred for Fox for canceling the show after only one season knows no boundaries and will be everlasting For those who, oddly enough, have never heard of or watched Firefly and the conclusive film Serenity, you can find a few clues to Jayne s personality in my review for The Only Way In Is Out To answer your question Yes, I think it s necessary to be familiar with Firefly and Jayne s character to appreciate what Gala did in The Only Way In Is Out Chances are that you won t get along with our Jayne here otherwise Gala may have renamed him Jacqs he still is a pretty special guy.The novella barely stilled my hunger, so imagine my excitement when Gala expanded it into a book of no less than 340 pages As it turns out I still like the original story best Sure, Turbulence is well written, has a couple of nice alpha on alpha sex scenes and the kind of testosterone fueled wrestling scenes that this author always does so well But overall, some of the magic was lost for me in the extended part and I found that I had to really push myself to read on.Pinpointing what precisely caused this Jacqs personality as well as that of his love interest Zeke seemed to have changed rather dramatically in the extended part If you, like me, are delighted when you come across unconventional heroes in your M M, chances are that you will be a tad disappointed when the tough and boorish MC, who has only just discovered his sexuality, changes into a guy with mushy tendencies There s hand holding, there s thinking about the man he loves and both men worry about each other like mother hens I had hoped their fling would take aamusing and interesting direction Don t tell me sharing a bunk with a Jacqs doesn t havepotential than turning it into a butterflies daisies experience What got to me most though, was thelack of humor Firefly is a series that made me cry from laughing so hard, not in the last place because of Jayne s hilarious, politically incorrect character He may be a dim witted asshole, at least he is incredibly funny because of it Since Turbulence is based on this very series and character, making comparisons is unavoidable And unfortunately, those aren t in Turbulence s favor Without Firefly s signature humor, Jacqs simply is too bland a character for me to really enjoy reading about.Still, there s no doubt that Gala is a fantastic writer who has written a bunch of impressive works for example have you read Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts yet You should And although this book didn t live up to my expectations completely, its world will probably make the hearts of science fiction fans beat faster Then there s of course the Firefly factor If you loved that series, I would definitely recommend reading The Only Way In Is Out and, if you like what you read, see for yourself if Turbulence works for you 3.5 starsJacqs, brusque speech and a bristling demeanor get him intotrouble than he deserves First impressions are not his friend, and silver tongued he s not

different ways and it means change is a blowing Experienced and being vetted for , he s seen the front lines of this war and knows how ugly the truth is.Experienced is the opposite of the Caridu personnel With a crew so green one can only hope they don t run into anything Compared to everyone else around here, she was only averagely incompetent But even in the far reaches of space, things happen Life didn t owe them one minute together, and now it looked like life felt a need to remind them all of that fact Cue the hyperspace shift from the quiet complacency of daily ship life to mission orders received There was nice development of the characters before the action intensified Jacq s transformation during the story was less of a surprise to him than everyone else Watching him and Zeke battle it out was fun Actually, it was pretty darn hot Seeing Jacq bite his tongue was funny and the ending was unexpected, untraditional, and I loved it.What didn t work was the encyclopedia required to reference the various sexual identities in this book I loved that there were so many, but crammed into a single book was a bit overload I think it might have worked better to have fewer characters orientations explained and kept the head spinning to a minimum Recommended to space opera fans and alpha v alpha loversFavorite quote The world s going to take a shit on my head anywhere I

a unique way of thinking and it makes him a real special character Lots of people agree with me that in the beginning, he might seem a little slow or not that bright , but he s anything but Telling about some of my favorite Jacqs moments will bring on a bit of a spoiler so I m not going there, but trust me, trust he others, he is SPECIAL and you will LOVE him.Zeke Well he s about the most perfect person to go stumbling onto the ship The perfect person for Jacqs Zeke grew up on the other side of life but he gets Jacqs like nobody ever has before.They are so good to each other There really isn t muchto say.I loved this story I even cried Again in one of my Jacqs moments My heart broke for Zeke, for Jacqs and for the crew of this little outcast ship.These guys are true hero s They are MY hero s Corporal Jacqs Glebov is a simple soldier who wants a bunk, decent food and the company of other battle hardened men and women who understand the realities of fighting Instead he s stuck patrolling a remote corner of the border with cadets straight out of boot camp They don t understand him, and he sure doesn t have an ounce of respect for themAfter a field promotion, Earth sends Commander Zeke Waters to the Candiru for some practical experience in a leadership role Instead, Zeke falls in lust with the adamantly heterosexual Jacqs The way Jacqs fights and the way he sees the world draws Zeke closer, even if common sense tells him to walk awayEven if they can find a way to reconcile their sexual differences, they are both still soldiers The war will eventually take them away from each other unless they can find a way to escape the rules that have defined their lives This is a fun, absorbing, very accessible SciFi story, with enough thought in the setting and world building to be plausible and interesting, but not so much that it demands close attention or detracts from the human story The charm of the book is definitely in its POV character, Jacqs, who is unusual, memorable and worth spending time with.Jacqs is an experienced soldier, a big man and a fighter, with a very straightforward world view and attitude He grew up in refugee camps and on a smuggler This is a fun, absorbing, very accessible SciFi story, with enough thought in the setting and world building to be plausible and interesting, but not so much that it demands close attention or detracts from the human story The charm of the book is definitely in its POV character, Jacqs, who is unusual, memorable and worth spending time with.Jacqs is an experienced soldier, a big man and a fighter, with a very straightforward world view and attitude He grew up in refugee camps and on a smugglers ship, and somewhere along the way developed an extreme pragmatism He also has a blindspot for bullshit not that he doesn t recognize it when he sees it, but that he has no concept of why people feel compelled to spew it or live with it, or expect anyone to believe it or go along with it He s not particularly intelligent, but he isn t stupid either, just simple, in perceptions and reactions.When Jacqs believes something, he acts on it This explains his current long assignment in a back waters patrolling ship His habit of acting on it is to punch out the guy who needs punching, regardless of what regulations say Jacqs makes no allowances for status, whether the object of his ire is giving rotten food to starving refugees, or grabbing a woman roughly, whether she s a whore or no He s been promoted and busted back half a dozen times, and just lives with that cycle.Jacqs also has a blindspot he isn t aware of, for the variety of human sexual experiences and preferences In this future, people register their preferences, to avoid misunderstanding Jacqs is registered as hetero, and his loathing for the gay man on crew whom he knows best seems to reinforce that But a new pan sexual commander, who is also a veteran and a fighter, begins to tip his perceptions off level And it becomes clear that his background, size and belligerent attitude have kept him from figuring out who he really is The new commander, Zeke, is about to change all that.In a way, this character reminded me slightly of Al in Muscling Through he doesn t have Al s fundamental sweetness and goodness, but he has the same clarity of vision that cuts to the heart of a situation without even realizing all the civilized obscuring layers exist Of course, once he gets to the heart, Jacqs is likely to either fight it or fuck it, but there is a straightforwardness to him that is admirable to those who see it And Zeke, the battle front veteran with an artificial leg who lands on his ship, is a man who also can see through the appearance of things to their heart.This was a fast, fun read with some hot sex scenes and a MC and his love interest who stand apart and fascinated me I haven t read this author before, but I definitely will now Highly recommended
